Continual Distributed Learning for Crisis Management

26 Apr 2021  ·  Aman Priyanshu, Mudit Sinha, Shreyans Mehta ·

Social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook etc can be utilised as an important source of information during disaster events. This information can be used for disaster response and crisis management if processed accurately and quickly... However, the data present in such situations is ever-changing, and using considerable resources during such a crisis is not feasible. Therefore, we have to develop a low resource and continually learning system that incorporates text classification models which are robust against noisy and unordered data. We utilised Distributed learning which enabled us to learn on resource-constrained devices, then to alleviate catastrophic forgetting in our target neural networks we utilized regularization. We then applied federated averaging for distributed learning and to aggregate the central model for continual learning. read more
